    i belive my cat to be around 5 - 6 weeks expecting
    ive read up loads about neutrition, nesting boxes etc but my question is about my other resident cat and dog.

    the cats have a safe room as it is with a stair gate so they can be away from the muttly if he decides to play, but when mum starts to nest its advised to seperate the queen from all other animals - what is the best way to do this? apart from shutting her in the room which will stress her out how can i stop the other cat from disturbing her? should i keep them in seperate rooms? they are inseperable and the one that is expecting is never far behind big cat. and oddly she has grown attached to the dog she will follow him around and rubs against him

    how do you keep your other animals from bothering a queen?

    hey i dont know much about breeding only what i have read on here from others and i know people in the same situation have been told that they dont need to separate the queen from other cats until the last few days i hope this helps and im sure someone will be along soon with some more helpful advice for you.
